Hi Chris, I would find interesting an episode about the implementation of a digest. I mean these weekly types of e-mail that send platforms like medium or quora in which they send the most interesting things of the week, and they are all sent every week at the very same time.

In the begining, I thought about doing some kind of cron job, adapting the email template, and then sending it through sendgrid, but I wonder how would you do that.

Great idea! And yes, I would do a cron job. It'd query for maybe like the top 10 posts of the week, or whatever content you want to display. Then just pass that into a mailer and send those out.
